Very Berry Smoothie

As promised the other day, I am bringing you yet another yummy, scrumptious and filling smoothie recipe!

This is what we enjoyed for breakfast yesterday morning. It's soooo good. And fruity. And yummy. And did I mention good??

It's also super simple. I love how quick and easy it is to make on busy mornings, or mornings where you just want something light. Here's how to make the lovely concoction that is a Very Berry Smoothie. It makes a very large batch for us and our six kiddos. But if you have older kids or teens, you *might* want to make a second batch. Unless you have a super capacity blender (I don't).


Onto the smoothie. :)

Very Berry Smoothie
1 pint raw milk yogurt
2 cups frozen, mixed berries (any combo of mixed berries will do...strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries)
*Fresh could be used as well but I suggest adding extra ice for a thicker smoothie if using fresh fruits.
1/2 c frozen spinach
1/3 c oats
1/4-1/3c liquid whey (or milk is fine if you don't have whey on hand)
1/4 c honey or choice of sweetener (sucanant, etc)
1 Tbsp raw, unrefined coconut oil
2 tsp ground flax seed
1 tsp vanilla
2 drops lemon essential oil (use a good quality oil that is safe to consume)
Contents of wheatgrass capsule or 1/8 tsp wheatgrass powder
Dash of sea salt
Raw milk

Add all ingredients except ice and raw milk. When everything is added, then add enough ice to finish filling container 3/4 of the way full. Add milk until it just covers the top of the ice. Cap, then using the Drink function, blend into a beautiful shade of deliciousness! I suggest running the cycle twice to make sure all is blended smoothly.

If you do not have a Drink cycle, you can simply high pulse for 30-40 seconds, then repeat as necessary.

Pour then serve immediately. Yields approximately 48-54oz.


May God Richly Bless You!
